I tried to order eggs and bacon to my coffee and apple crumble. Unfortunately, this was not possible as they sell "breakfast" only until 10am. The coffee was ok but nothing special.

Very delicious wraps made to order. Excellent quality. We picked these up on the way to Moraine Lake to have a picnic. There is a liquor store just a few stores down, so we picked up a few cold drinks for the picnic as well.

I was so glad I went in and ordered a sandwich to go. This place has delicious and natural foods. Everything is fresh, the service is great, and the food is amazing. I definitely suggest the BLT sandwich!
